No Comments on Windows 10 Technical Preview – Activation

Some days are left…then the release of Windows 10 is there… but some of us can’t wait and are running all the preview builds (like me)

At the moment i am downloading Build 10166 of Windows 10 Enterprise TP:

Windows 10 Build 10166

But when running the Windows 10 TP, there is the question how to activate it?! Now there was a good writeup in Insider Hub:

1. Go to Settings > Update & Security > Activation to check your activation status.

2. Take the Actions listed below depending on the Activation Status:

  • Status: Windows is activated.
         Action: None
  • Status: Connect to the internet to activate Windows.
         Action: Connect to the internet and Select Activate button
  • Status: Windows is not activated.
         Action: Select Change Product Key and enter appropriate product key for the Windows 10 Preview Edition you’re running from below:
